Tiff Siblings

Some siblings are so close they almost think the same. So when PEI siblings Vanessa Barry and Sean Barry found themselves working together, they decided to have some fun.

Originally from East Royalty Vanessa and Sean both live and work in Toronto. And right now they're at the centre of a big international extravaganza - the Toronto International Film Festival, or TIFF. I didn't know either of them until I met them on Facebook and saw photos featuring a grumpy looking guy leaning in in the foreground - and what looked to be his slave driving boss in the background, or whining about her computer not working or her battle with laryngitis.

Norma Jean - Carpet Art

 There was quite a splash earlier this week when the revitalized Canada House in London was reopened. The Queen and Prince Philip paid a visit to the 200 year old building that faces Trafalgar Square. Every room of the new High Commission is decorated with 29 dazzling area rugs that depict the work of visual artists from across our Country. Norma Jean MacLean is an artist from PEI whose paintings have been interpreted into carpets in two of the rooms in Canada House in London.

It's a new era in PEI politics, well sort of.
This is Premier Wade McLaughlan's first day in the job of premier.
And unlike most politicians he has yet to win a vote.
That's meant no real platform or policies until the Liberal Convention on the weekend.
Our political columnist has been watching the activities with great interest.
Here's Richard Raiswell.

Father Tom

The sense of excitement around a new Pope is still reverberating, along with hopes the church will move forward.

In the area of communications, the Catholic church may be light years ahead of many religions let alone broadcasters.

One of the key people delivering the church's message is
Father Tom Rosica.
